Senator WALKER (New South Wales) . - It seems to me that the proviso to which Senator Chataway has called attention practically offers a premium for Australian sailors to desert. Surely we must provide for fair play all round. If an Australian voluntarily enters into an engagement to serve on a foreign ship, we should not offer an inducement to him to desert. I am in favour of deleting the proviso.
